Travel photos : Russia 2007 : Kozmodemyansk


Ekaterina, our host in Yoshkar-Ola, told us that there are many old wooden Mari houses in Kozmodemyansk. So there was. We spent there few hours watching the town and visiting an open-air museum.

Kozmodemyansk is named after Saints Cosmas and Damian. There is also a newer section in the city but we didn't visit there (only passed through it by bus).
